The thrill of the jumps, an electric atmosphere and a crowning of champions.  A fantastic day of horse racing is in store at Sandown Park this afternoon as the Jump Finale brings the National Hunt season to a close.

In 2023 Kitty’s Light achieved a rare double claiming the coveted Gold Cup just seven days after winning the Scottish Grand National.  Ridden by Jack Tudor and trained by Christian Williams the chaser followed in the hoofsteps of Irish raider Hewick who won the race the previous year.  Hewick was back at Sandown in 2023, taking the honours in the Grade Two Oaksey Chase with Rachael Blackmore on board.  Paul Nicholls enjoyed a day to remember the becoming champion jump trainer for the 14th time.  As did Brian Hughes, crowned the champion jump jockey.  What will this year bring?  All roads lead to Sandown Park to find out!


A seven-race Jump Finale card includes the Celebration Chase over two miles at 1.40pm.  With a prize pot of £150,000 at stake this Grade 1 (aka best of the best) race saw the mighty Altior truimph in 2019.  Altior won for the third consecutive year and in so doing took his extraordinary winning streak to 19 consecutive races.

At 2.15pm it’s the bet365 Gold Cup Handicap Chase.  A big field of top horses is expected to compete for the £80,000+ first prize and the famous trophy.  Two other Grade 2 races on the card and over half a million in prize money expected to be at stake on the day will ensure the best horses, jockeys and trainers in the UK are in attendance.

The final jumps fixture of the season also marks the crowning of champions.  The Champion Jockey, Conditional Jockey, Champion Trainer and Owner.  As is tradition the ceremonies will take place before racing starts.  Arrive early to see who will follow in the footsteps of famous names such as A P McCoy and Richard Johnson (champions jockeys) and Bryony Frost (conditional jockey champion) and champion trainers Paul Nicholls and Nicky Henderson.
